In August 2014, President Obama will welcome leaders from across the African continent to Washington D.C. for a three-day U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.

The Summit seeks to strengthen ties between the United States and one of the world's most dynamic and fastest growing regions. The Wilson Center's Monde Muyangwa, Director of the Africa Program, and Roger-Mark De Souza, Director of Population, Environmental Security, and Resilience, discuss why the summit is important, what issues will be addressed, and the anticipated outcomes for broader U.S.-Africa engagement.
